2016 Tournament Prep
- Will the team need to bring a Core Values poster to the Core Values Judging? No. Northern California does not use the Core Values poster.
- Will NorCal continue doing a short teamwork activity at the beginning of the Core Values Judging? Yes, we plan to continue this and FIRST does endorse this. Our judges like to use the teamwork activity as an icebreaker and as a great observational tool on team dynamics and interactions. They don’t use the teamwork activity to fill out the rubric – the questions & answers are used to fill out the rubric.
- Will the team need to bring a Robot Design Executive Summary to Robot Design Judging? No. Northern California does not use this.
- How can I best prepare my team for the tournament? Listen to this webinar that exactly answer this question
- What is the team’s schedule for the day? QT Schedules – note there is very little difference between 12 team and 16 team tournament.
